A legend in funk circles, the enigmatic producer Soopasoul made his name from a hugely successful debut album ‘Twin Stix’. Since then he’s furthered his legacy by creating a hugely successful edits series and recently returned with some fresh Soopasoul cuts in the shape of ‘If It Ain’t Funky Back It Up’ and ‘Pushin Weight’. But as the tenth anniversary of ‘Twin Stix’ draws near the man has gone back to where he started and delivered some special 7” edits of two of those classic tracks.
‘Ya Looking Tight’ has been a DJ secret weapon for years and now it’s been given a tidy little edit that makes it even tastier… Still packing all the funk but also trimming a full minute off the original into a compact arrangement for all of your dancefloor needs.
But it doesn’t stop there. A standout track on the album and this producer’s calling-card - ‘Soopasoul Theme’ was a beast of a jam weighing in at over six minutes. With its new streamlined and svelte makeover it clocks in at under four and comes complete with a drums outro that’s incredibly amenable to DJ mixing.
